Storyline

Raghav brags that he can smell a rat or an impersonator automatically, and Dr. Parimal Tripathi decides to take him on - result: funny family slapstick comedy, with a dose of pure Hindi and Urdu thrown in, especially the dialogue delivery by Om Prakash, Dharmendra, and Amitabh Bachchan. Notable songs are :Sare ga ma, ma sa re ga ma...."; "Ab ke sajan sawan me, aag lagegi badan mein, ghata barshegi, magar tarsegi nazar, mil na sakenghe do mahn ek hi aagan mein..."; "Chupke chupke chal di purvaiya, basuri bajaike raas rachaye daiya re daiya, chupke...".

Sssssh - you have been framed!
22 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Decades before David Dhawan and Priyadarshan rediscovered comedy in Indian Cinema and began their barrage of outings, the undisputed emperors in this genre were Hrishikesh Mukhejee and Basu Chatterjee.

Both relied heavily on creating a natural humour as opposed to what we witness today ie. mindless comedy/ situational comedy/ tongue-in-cheek comedy. And this very natural humour gives USP for "Chupke Chupke" repeat viewings.

Dharmendra:: Dharmendra gets the lions share in "Chupke Chupke". He proves his versatility as an actor by doing comedy effortlessly.

Om Prakash:: "Chupke Chupke" rests heavily on the performance from two actors namely Dharmendra and Om Prakash. If there was any short-coming from either, the entire proceedings would have fallen like a pack of cards. It goes without saying that it was fantastic performance from Mr. Om Prakash.

Big B:: An extended special appearance compared to Dharmendra. The panic-attack prone professor and his inability to hold his nerves is brilliantly breathed to life by Amitabh. Lets not forget that this movie got released in the same year as "Sholay" and "Deewar" which casted his image of angry young man in stone. Talk about chalk-and-cheese!

The rest of the star-cast namely Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bhaduri, Asrani, David and Keshto lend adequate support. S D Burman's composition to Anand Bakshi's lyrics are a music for ears. As with most successful outings of Hrishda, Gulzar's gets involved to contribute his two-cents in the department of screenplay and dialogues and needless to say makes the movie flow seamlessly.

Verdict:: Anytime is "Chupke Chupke" time!
